This evening i built a test tarball, similar to those i used to build

The results were encouraging, even if a lot of work has to be done yet.
There are many bugs in the code still awaiting to be fixed and major
work is needed to support HTTP encoding/decoding and to correctly
display non latin languages [1].

Ouch, I think this is going to be a major problem. IIRC, a web page
can have only one encoding, thus we will hit again the Han unification
problem (Thanks a lot Unicode consortium for performing a lobotomy on
the unicode!). If anybody can contradict me, please, do.
